    There are some good looking deer there. Have you hunted there before? I have read up on the details and it looks pretty easy to get access. I didnt see anything about a quota hunt. Is it just register for a permit and hunt? I might try to hunt there next year. I would love to get a hog too. Any info, good or bad, from anyone would be appreciated.

    I am planning to go down there next year, maybe for a 4 day stay. They are set up on a phone call in system, they have set times you can start calling based on your category, 2 days prior to your hunting. So you have to look on their website, to see what areas are open, then you have to call in and use your Pin number, and select 1 area at a time, then wait till the end of the call to see if you are signed in, if you dont get in that area you have to start over, once you are successful, then you hang up, then the day prior to your hunt you have to stop in their hunt control office and pick up your area assignment sheet, then you go hunt, and you have to clear thru that same phone system. Also you have to arrive early and go thru gate 4 visitor center and complete a weapons registration form. Im going to try it, but i can see some aggravation with that system, and would likely make you wish you were back at Knox, realizing how easy we actually have it here.

    My bet is that coyotes got to him before he could be retrieved....

    i'm not researching it, but i'm not taking issue with the Texas deer brought into Ft Campbell, it's your reasoning you use to justify the two different size deer. after a few generations, the smaller deer will evolve to the size of the local population.

    the small bucks (125-140 field dressed) we have outside of Ft Knox on our property must have come from that brood stock from Campbell, probably chased there by mountain lions..........or maybe the poor nutrition they have is keeping them on the smaller size vs deer around farming areas.
